It was the sell-out success of 2020 – and now the immersive drive-in cinema experience Christmas City is returning to Manchester once again later this month.
With the festive season right around the corner and Christmas creeping up on on us quickly, the much-loved drive-in cinema and entertainment phenomenon that took 2020 by storm in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns, is coming back to Greater Manchester this November.
Christmas City will take over a brand-new location at the Soccer Dome in Stretford from 26 November 2021 – 2 January 2022 to bring entertainment safely to visitors in their own cars from the biggest screen in the UK.
And tickets are now on sale.
Returning with what is being described as a “festive extravaganza”, Christmas City – hosted by Park N Party, the team also behind popular drive-in events SecretCity and ScareCity – is set to show a huge selection of outdoor Christmas cinema classics, including Home Alone, Elf, The Polar Express, and so many more.
But this is no ordinary drive-in cinema though.
Each ticket gives visitors the chance to journey through the immersive ‘Christmas Village’, with surprises, live actors, and Santa Claus himself there to greet you.
Christmas City is packed with goodies for a day filled with fun, so this year, you can wander through the magical candy cane forest, and take advantage of the many photo opportunities available with scenes from Elf and The Grinch, all before you wrap up your delightfully-festive day out with a Christmas classic displayed on a huge 150 sq m screen.
Visitors can choose between events that are suitable for families, or the strictly-for-adults alternative this Christmas.
Kids can post their letters to Santa in the dedicated Christmas post box and explore the North Pole from the safety of your car, all before you pitch up and watch screenings of favourites such as Home Alone, The Polar Express, Elf, and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
But if you’re looking for a grown-up escape this Christmas, then this immersive cinema experience is also the perfect evening out without the kids – with screenings of films such as The Holiday, Bad Santa, Die Hard, and Love Actually.
There’s also set to be a fully-licensed bar and festive food vendors on site throughout the whole running of the event.
Tickets are priced at £45 per vehicle + VAT.
The full event schedule and the lineup of films can be found on the Park N Party website, and you can book your tickets here.
